I seem to have set off a firestorm on Twitter today because I said something that is undeniably true, but I added a word I should not have. I’ll explain that later on. For now, allow me to explain why being “single-payer or bust” is narrow-minded and unrealistic. This is
On this Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, 2018, I am prepared for a bunch of different things. For example, I am prepared to get sucked into a Twitter racist vortex, in which people with no lives will text the “n-word” a number of times. I also expect Lord Donny to
Donald Trump likes to brag about how great the economy has been for the last year. Some of the things he takes credit for are just plain bizarre. For example, there are these Tweets from a couple days ago: More great news as a result of historical Tax Cuts and
I am getting really tired of people on all sides attributing Donald Trump’s behavior to “ignorance.” I can handle ignorance; everyone is ignorant about certain things. For example, if an engineer or a physicist were to ask me difficult questions about those subjects, I would be ignorant and I would
Over the weekend, I responded to one of Lord Donny’s Tweets, in which he bragged on himself as a “VERY successful businessman.” I countered by saying he is anything but a “successful businessman.” In fact, the myth of “The Donald” could very well be one of the most exaggerated legends
I am almost halfway through Michael Wolff’s blockbuster book, “Fire & Fury,” and the first thing I will tell you is, it’s not that well-written. Of course, given that he was writing about a White House full of cronies, sycophants and lamebrains, how could he write it so it sounded
There has been a lot of talk about the 25th Amendment and the fact that Lord Donny Trump is batshit crazy enough that it should have been invoked by now. The problem is, we are directing our ire at Trump himself, when we should be directing it at the Republican
A throwback to a bygone era, and just plain fun… This is Rush Limbaugh, telling the truth for once in his life…
One of the most underreported stories of the Trump era has to be Lord Donny’s complete abolition of any sort of decorum when it comes to the federal government. It’s not just the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution; there are violations of that, but there is a whole lot more.
For some reason, I found myself awake earlier than usual this morning. Perhaps I was eager to begin the new year or something; who knows. Whatever the reason, I started perusing my Twitter feed. There, I once again came across the biggest problem with journalism today. It started with a
It is hard to believe this is a controversial statement, but given the amount of shit I receive every time I say it, it sure seems to be. Yet, I’m going to keep saying it, because it’s absolutely true: The vast majority of voters are motivated by hope. I know,
It is once again clear that Lord Donny of Trump has no concept of his job, even after nearly a year. Worse, his lack of knowledge doesn’t stop him from saying ignorant things to people in other countries. Last night, he Tweeted the following about Iran: Many reports of peaceful
There is no bigger joke in the body politic of the United States than when a Republican touts “fiscal responsibility.” They have no concept of what it means to be fiscally responsible and they treat tax dollars as both the product of massive thievery as well as their own personal
As I have pointed out repeatedly, the difference between the Democratic and Republican Parties has never been more stark. The Democratic ideology is about helping as many people as possible, whereas the Republican ideology is all about low taxes and not spending money on anything, except tax cuts. One of
As a lifelong progressive who really, truly wants to live in the greatest country in the world, I find both the progressive movement and the country at a crossroads. There are two fundamental questions that we as a movement must ask and answer if we are to finally be successful.
I absolutely love it when I am proven right. However, my glee has nothing to do with my being right. I am a progressive and I want to see the country move forward. When Democrats win, we move forward; it’s really that simple. Hell; our grandparents and great grandparents figured
